Andrew Hood births his latest addition to Invisible Publishing's Bibliophonic series. Jim Guthrie: Who Needs What tells the story of a musician never compromising, doing what he loved, and keeping it weird.
And Andrew Forbes launches What You Need, a collection of vital, honest stories where loyalties collide with long-buried love, a man builds a nuclear bomb in his garage, and helicopters ferry away the injured.
About Who Needs What:
Even if you've never heard of Jim Guthrie, chances are you've heard him. Invisible Publishing's Bibliophonic series returns, this time with a look at a true Canadian innovator.Jim Guthrie: Who Needs What tells the story of a musician whose twenty year career has been spent either at the forefront of Canada's indie rock renaissance or in the background of some of the most popular indie games, films, and ad campaigns of the past decade. Through interviews with Jim, his collaborators, and fans, this book explores how a self-described "Seabiscuit" with a cult following became a major influencer of musicians at home and abroad, while never compromising, doing what he loved, and keeping it weird.
Andrew Hood is the author of the award-winning short story collections Pardon Our Monsters (Véhicule Press) and The Cloaca (Invisible Publishing). Maisonneuve Magazine has called him "one of Canada's most criminally undervalued writers." He probably still lives in Guelph.
About What You Need:
Loyalties collide with long-buried love, a man builds a nuclear bomb in his garage, and helicopters ferry away the injured. What You Need is a collection of vital, honest stories told in a personal and urgent style. Forbes's characters struggle to challenge their all too ordinary lives, falling victim to fate, to one another, and to self-sabotage. These are stories about failure and yearning, and they remind us of the humour and humanity in even the worst decisions.
Andrew Forbes’s stories have appeared in The Feathertale Review, Found Press, PRISM international, The New Quarterly, Scrivener Creative Review, The Journey Prize Stories 25, This Magazine, Hobart, and The Puritan. He lives in Peterborough, Ontario.
